Why would you go to "Flatland" for advise instead of medical professionals?

Don't be a fool.

Basically a lot of 'we don't really know' - great scoop Flatland. Here is one thing I know already: I have several N95 masks that I bought in a pack at the hardware store for painting years ago. If I take them to a hospital they will be thrown in the trash (open packet, unknown origin). So CDC, thanks for the advice that says I should not wear them, but I think I will just wear them.

Dr Fauci, who is leading the US response to coronavirus, added that "no one is going to deny" that logically, earlier mitigation could have saved lives.
But he said "what goes into those kinds of decisions is complicated".
"There was a lot of pushback about shutting things down back then."
When the so called head doctor in so many words says it isn't all cut and dry what to do or can be done you question just who to listen to.

In short nobody has all the answers and blaming Trump or any single person is carry over I'm pissed he won and Hillary didn't line of thinking. I'm sure not happy with how things went but have no idea what would have been a better move either. I mean if the country had been shut down totally in January based on what we now know it probably wouldn't have changed a whole lot other than we would now be approaching month 3 of lockdown. Damn if you do and damned if you don't is how events like this will always play out.
